Waibel, a well-known ceramic artist, has been fighting cancer for five years. Her husband Terry, a long-time school district cook who retired last year, said she was told in September that her condition was terminal.
Unwilling to accept that diagnosis, she has been undergoing treatment at Cancer Centers of America. She has been flying to Tulsa every two weeks for care.
Her husband said doctors there told her she can expect another five to seven years.
Terry, who grew up in Carlton, and Sandy, who joined him in the community in 1982, have been married for 39 years. They have raised three children: Jason, an Amity resident who will help prepare Saturday’s dinner; Charlie, a chef in Palm Springs, Calif.; and Samantha, who lives with her husband in Fort Lewis, Wash.
